I would give this product a 5 except that it does not do what it states it is supposed to do. Nevertheless, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It's a pink-colored light gel, and when I tried to use it to refresh my dry 2nd day curls, it just sat on my hair and only slightly improved the appearance. However, this gel overwhelmingly defines my curls when my hair is damp. I primarily use this product as a detangler on wash days- I first add a light water-based LIC, then I apply a dime sized amount of this product to each section and voila! My hair suddenly detangles itself and my curls become incredibly well defined. My hair virtually never tangles and I have found that it is specifically because I use the Curls Unleashed Second Chance Curl Refresher.
This serum did not give much shine or refreshing, it really just left my hair very greasy and seemed to straighten the curls I wanted to stay. Won't be using again..
I like this a lot as a refresher for when I have the time to thoroughly dampen (not soak) my hair, and let it dry into shape. Second Chance smells refreshing and it makes my curls pop without frizz. I can't use just water to refresh my hair, because it gives me frizz, and I love the separation and elongation I get from this liquid. For refreshing throughout the day, and taming frizz without having to get my hair so wet, usually I prefer sprays. Even though Second Chance is a liquid that feels like a thin gel, adds softness and moisture, so I don't need to use sprays as often during the day. Second Chance does not provide any hold, but I find it works beautifully under Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee for great shape and hold without crunch or flakes.
I received a free sample of this product off of the Curls Unleashed Facebook page. I love everything about this product. I usually use water to refresh my curls but I lose curly definition. I mixed this product with water and sprayed it into my hair and my curls were popping. I really like this product and the smell is amazing.
This product makes my curls pop! Use it sparingly. It has a syrupy runny consisistency and can be drying if you use too much. The key to this product is knowing just how much to use and the method you use to apply it. I add a little (quarter sized amount) to the palm of my hand and then rub my hands together for greater distribution. I then smooth this product through my curls and they jump right back!
This needs a spray bottle - it's awkward applying it because it's a runny liquid. For me it works about the same as most glycerin/protein refresher sprays, which can get really sticky and dry out my hair. (But that's me - and I'm sure this is a high quality formula). I don't like the smell of this refresher - it's anything but "fresh". The smell reminds me of ammonia. It does put bounce back into my curls, but so does water...I like my refreshers to add moisture, and I think this adds more "texture".
I didn't like the smell of this product nor the feel of it. I could have used water to refresh curls and would have been more satisfied. I would have been better off using the leave again. (which I loved)
Despite being called a refresher, I used this as a gel and LOVED it. With the change from 80s to 90s (yes, far earlier this year) and t-storms many afternoons, this gel has been my go-to product when I wanted to *know* my curls were going to be springy and bouncy. Good shine. Low frizz. Some curl boosting with solid curl encouragement. Good definition. I used a little less than I would as a gel which was also cost-efficient. If I awake with any areas of frizz roughed up from sleep, it also was good to smooth the roughed up areas into a curl clump.
This had the texture of a watery gel. I think it would worked well to seal in moisture, but I wouldn't use it as a primary moisturizer. It did leave my hair shiny, bouncy, and not at all crunchy or greasy.
I have never been into curl refreshers but I must say that I loved this one! I added it to my spray bottle with water and that did the trick! I would highly recommend this product!
This stuff is great! I was so impressed with the Curls Unleashed Curling Creme that I decided to try this. I don't usually have good success with 2nd day hair techniques, but this one one worked exactly as described. I misted my hair with water just to dampen it and ran about a quarter size of the Curl Refresher through my shoulder-lenghth hair. It dried beautifully with nice, soft defined curls. I even got 3rd day hair by taking large sections of hair, very lightly misting and twisting at bedtime. I did not apply any additional product. The next morning I untwisted my hair, separated with my fingers and voila!....beautiful curls.
Best thing I've ever used to refresh my wash & gos! Overnight if my curls flatten out or get frizzy I apply this, shake and in no time the curls have life again.
